ACUI Inclusive Language Policy 

The Association of College Unions International, founded in 1914, is one of the oldest professional associations in higher education. Its core purpose is to “be the leader in advancing campus community builders.” This core purpose is fulfilled through the pursuit of ACUI’s Mission: to support members in the development of community through education, advocacy, and the delivery of services. ACUI works with its members in a partnership focused on personal and professional development, study, and improvement of member organizations, services, programs, facilities, and personnel.

In keeping with this purpose and to promote an appreciation for diversity, all written, oral, and visual communications, e.g., presentations, audiotapes, videotapes, publications, written correspondence, documents and reports, graphic illustrations, and photography, shall not include stereotypical images, terms, or expressions. Preparation of communications shall avoid gender-specific terms (e.g., not mankind but humanity) or titles (e.g., not chairman but chairperson). Characterizing an individual by age, ethnicity, gender, national origin, physical ability, race, religion, and sexual orientation shall be avoided unless specifically relevant to the topic. Use of visual images shall represent a balance of diversity and reflect individuals in a non-stereotypical manner.

The Association is committed to creating and maintaining a sense of community and inclusion for all its constituents and raising awareness regarding issues of oppression. ACUI values the diversity, including that of gender, race, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, age, and differing ability, reflected in its institutional and individual membership. Accordingly, all who are involved in the Association as volunteers, employees or guests of the organization, shall use modes of communication reflective of this commitment.

Regional Conference Language Statement

In keeping with the spirit and letter of the ACUI Inclusive Language Policy, we ask that all presenters at the regional conference be mindful that our audiences include students and professionals from all types of campuses and educational institutions, as well as corporate and nonprofit members and partners. Every effort is expected of presenters and speakers to include appropriate language, material, and examples for the Association’s target audience and membership.
